PureBrainz was inspired by brainfuck and tries to keep the basis, the spirit, while implementing proper tools to make programs. These tools include variables (anchor-points) in the memory-tape, multiple kinds of loops, that can either be hard-coded or depend on a memory cell, as well as functions that can take in pointer positions as arguments, and ternary operations (if/else), and finally, modules, which means you can create a package manager, and have libraries! You can too, import raw data from files.

Here is another explanation by the creator (hoping it doesn't break the rules of the wiki)

Declare a Variable (set an Anchor) - Need to implement gliders etc. #variable_name
Overwrite a Variable (reset an Anchor) A true headache #variable_name
Go to an Anchor (Variable) +[->+]- (extremely limited) @variable_name
Declare a function Impossible #fun(*arg1*arg2*arg3){...}
Call a function Impossible :fun(*arg1*arg2*arg3)
Use currant pointer as argument Impossible *here
Import a module Impossible |~ModuleName|
Import raw data from a file Impossible "|~ModuleName|"
Hardcode a string ++...>++++...>... "Hello World !"
Empty a cell [-] [-] or $(-) (better practise)
Addition (not destroying input) Need to copy cells to not destroy the input values @c $(-) $a(+) $b(+) or use ~Math Module


Multiple modules are also available to deal with different data types and problems, such as ~List, ~Math, ~Memory, ~Utils, ~Matrix, ~String, etc.

Example Programs

Print Function

This print function stops when it hits a -1, the conventional end of any data structure.

It is included in ~Util

#print(*s){ *s +[-.>+]- }

Print (the memory values, not the char)

#print(*s){ *s +[-48(+).48(-)>+]- }

Print, with a space in between (for another separator, replace 32 with the ord of the character you want)

#print(*s*tmp){ *tmp 32(+) *s +[-.#i*tmp.@i>+]- *tmp $(-) }

Fibonacci sequence

0(+)>1(+)> 23( #c<#b<#a @c $a(+) $b(+) > )

Powers of 2

|~Math| #base 2(+) @12 #index + @0 >< 11(#i @index+ @i > :pow(*base*index*here*11))
